National Hispanic museum envisioned
Two South Florida firms are helping conceptualize a possible National Museum of the American Latino in Washington, D.C.
MIAMI, FL – The commission studying the potential creation of the National Museum of the American Latino selected contractors who will produce a report to determine the museum’s viability and whether it should become part of the Smithsonian Institution in the nation’s capital.
Two South Florida firms — Balsera Communications and República — are among those chosen by the federal commission, which meets in late February in Miami to outline a work schedule aimed at completing the report and submitting it to Congress before the end of the year. The two companies will promote the project and organize public forums.
The goal is to reflect the needs and preferences of different Hispanic communities, from large markets like Miami, New York and Los Angeles as well as smaller ones like Minneapolis. To read the full story click here.
